It’s some time now that we have been expecting the next gen Nexus 7 device to be finally unleashed. While many had put their bet on the release date of the new Google Nexus 7 2 happening during the Google I/O event held a couple of weeks ago, experts are now predicting the device to be finally unveiled later this month itself. Sure it’s again a game of hit or miss that is being played out though some more details of the device have come to the fore. And the best thing with the latest round of leak – which we hope will be the last before we get to see the real thing – is that it pretty much confirms what we have known of the upcoming Google tablet so far.
As revealed by an Asus customer service rep, the Nexus 7 2 will offer a 7 inch full HD display having a resolution of 1980 x 1200 pixels, which is quite close to the previous leaks that had pegged the tablet’s resolution at 1920 x 1080 pixels. Also, while previous rumors had claimed the device to feature a 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, the service rep in the latest revelation has stated the new generation Nexus tablet will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 chip at its core.
On the software side, the new Nexus 7 is expected to be the first device to come pre-loaded with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, the latest iteration of Android that is slated to launch anytime now. This apart, the Nexus 7 2 will also feature twin cameras, including a 2 mp unit at the front to allow for video chats and self portraits as well as a 5 mp unit integrated at the rear. What is almost a surety is that the Nexus 7 2 won’t be provided with a sd card slot, which means one will have to do with what the device comes fixed with.
